The US Open of 2022 is the 142nd US Open tennis event. It is the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. The Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon were held before. The US Open is an evolution of the oldest event of the United States National Championship (U.S. National Championship). It was first held in 1881, and since 1968 acquired the character of an open championship. It allows the participation in a joint event of both professional and amateur athletes. It will be held on outdoor hard courts at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.
Three tennis players have managed to win the US Open five times. They are Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer. The latter even won the US Open five consecutive years, from 2004 to 2008.
In the women’s category Chris Evert and Serena Williams have won six titles.
The US Open 2022 will begin on Monday, August 29 and end on Sunday, September 11. At last year’s tournament more than 600,000 spectators saw their favorite tennis players up close. A record of spectators was achieved in 2019 after 737,872 spectators had the chance to watch it. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 US Open was held without the presence of spectators.
